Kanye West

I'm Lovin' It ...

Lambo With a Side Of Fries

29 minutes ago BY TMZ STAFF

0522-kanye-west-mcdonalds-fameflynet-02Kanye West isn't the new Hamburglar, but he should be ... he rolled through a McDonald's Thursday in his slick black Lambo Aventador ... proving even icons need a fry fix.

Yeezy must have been suffering a DEFCON 1 Mac attack, since keeping a low profile was obviously not a priority. Hey, sometimes the golden arches call out to ya ... even if the aroma clashes with the fancy leather scent in your $500k whip.

Question is ... did he save any fries for Kim? The man's only human -- of course he didn't.

Nicki Minaj

Takes Pricey 'Perv' Jab at Tyga ...

And Her Bottom Line

5/19/2015 10:01 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0519-tyga-nicki-minaj-pervert-jersey-TMZ-YOUTUBE-01Nicki Minaj killed two birds with one ridiculously expensive stone -- a $1700 couture jersey with the words "Pervert 17" on it -- which looks like a direct shot at her label mate Tyga

The lacy Givenchy top also came in handy for Nicki's wardrobe in the "Feeling Myself" music video with Beyonce, but considering her bad blood with Tyga ... a lot of people think it's also not-so-subtle commentary about his 17-year-old girlfriend, Kylie Jenner.

Tyga and Nicki have had beef since last year when he said he was pissed he had to work with Nicki and Drake ... just because they're all signed to Young Money.

As for the Givenchy top ... it retails at $1,725!!! We'd say that's a stupid amount of money to spend just for a little revenge, but fact is -- that's just a stupid amount of money to spend on clothing, period.

Luckily, for Nicki .... we're betting her label picked up the tab.

Kris Jenner

Tells Bruce ...

I Never Saw This Coming

5/19/2015 6:16 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Kris Jenner broke down as she confronted Bruce Jenner during their "talk" ... essentially saying their relationship was a lie.

With smeared mascara, Kris seemed genuinely hurt during Monday night's "About Bruce: Part 2" special ... that she was the last person to whom Bruce told "the truth."

Bruce explained it was easier telling his secret to their kids than Kris. She does not receive that message well.

I'm Going to Be Full Woman

Surgery Scheduled

5/18/2015 6:42 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Bruce Jenner says he will fully become a woman, and strongly intimates he will have sexual reassignment surgery this spring.

Bruce was not 100% clear, but strongly suggested he's going under the knife.  

You've gotta listen to the whole thing ... he flip flops a bit, first telling Kim he's going all the way with the transition, and then talking about surgically tweaking his facial features. 

But in context, it sounds like the conversations -- shot months ago for "Keeping Up with the Kardashians" -- are about sexual reassignment surgery, but on the other hand it could be Bruce and the girls are simply talking past each other.

You also see in the clip how Khloe is having trouble handling it. Kim, on the other hand, is strong and even confronts Bruce about full disclosure.

Sound of Silence ...

Censors Forced to Dump BMA Performance

5/17/2015 8:38 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
breaking news

Kanye West gave ABC censors a collective heart attack Sunday night at the Billboard Music Awards -- because the rapper dropped so many n-words ... most of his act was dead silence.

Kanye closed the show with his hit, "All Day" -- but about all you could hear on TV was the song's title. Censors killed the audio for so much of the song ... you're really left wondering -- why bother? The censoring went as long as 15 solid seconds at times.

Plus, you could barely SEE Yeezy through all the fireworks and smoke. Again ... why bother?

One thing you could hear clearly -- the boos for Kylie and Kendall Jenner as they introduced their bro-in-law.

Tyga

A Landlord's Worst Nightmare

Racks Up Hefty Party Fines

5/15/2015 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0514-tyga-house-party-fines-fun-art-TMZ-GETTY01Tyga has neighbors in his fancy gated community pulling their hair out ... because they say he's repeatedly broken HOA rules, and racked up over $10k in unpaid fines for constantly throwing ragers.

Sources tell TMZ ... Tyga's been blowin' the roof off his Calabasas home in The Oaks development -- inviting too many guests to his parties, and letting them enter without proper security clearance. The homeowners' association has hit him with the fines, but it's having zero effect.

Since last August, Kylie Jenner's BF has paid a little here and there, but he's largely ignored the dozens of notices and warnings. We're told he was even banned from all common areas of The Oaks.

Here's the real kicker ... since Tyga rents, technically his landlord is on the hook -- but obviously, he's trying to get Tyga to cough up the dough.

Get in line ... said Blac Chyna.

'Gossip Girl' Star Kelly Rutherford

Help Me, Obama!

Get My Kids Outta Monaco

EXCLUSIVE

Former "Gossip Girl" star Kelly Rutherford hopes President Obama can do what the legal system hasn't ... get her kids out of Monaco, and end an international custody war with her ex-husband.

Kelly was on TMZ Live talking about the online petition encouraging the prez to step in on her behalf. She finally got the required 100,000 signatures on Tuesday when Kim Kardashian signed and retweeted it to her legion of fans.

Kelly's been battling Daniel Giersch ever since he got a California court's permission years ago to take their son and daughter to France. Giersch claimed he couldn't re-enter the U.S. due to visa issues. Kelly says he's now had their kids declared "habitual residents" of Monaco.

She's desperate for the State Department to throw her a bone, and protect her children's rights as U.S. citizens. It's a crazy saga ... check out her plea to Obama.

Hey Tyga, someone has a message for you ... stay away from our high schoolers!

Hanksy -- a self-proclaimed cross between Banksy and Tom Hanks -- skulked in the 'hood around Calabasas High ... and other places around L.A. ... to plaster signs warning that Tyga might be on the prowl.  

Obviously the art was inspired by Tyga's relationship with 17-year-old Kylie Jenner, who does not attend that school or any high school for that matter.  

Hanksy makes no bones about his disdain for the relationship, telling us, "I just think its f****d she’s ONLY 17."

Schwimmer's Gonna Nail My Ex

& Selma Blair Playing Me ...

5/13/2015 9:15 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

David Schwimmer will not be stuck in 2nd gear when it comes to playing Robert Kardashian -- at least according to Kris Jenner ... who gave him tips on how to nail the role.

The Queen of the Kardashian Klan gushed about Schwimmer Tuesday night outside of Craig's -- where she did dinner with BFF Melanie Griffith.

Schwimmer's playing Kris' ex-husband -- and O.J. Simpson's pal -- for Ryan Murphy's "American Crime Story: The People v. O.J. Simpson." As for Kris herself ... Selma Blair will be filling her shoes ...

And yes ... Kris gave her a review too. Check it out.

Open Season Begins

To Make a Buck Off Bruce

5/11/2015 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0508-bruce-jenner-tmz-01Bruce Jenner was clearly only partially successful in changing hearts and minds during his Diane Sawyer interview, because some clown is mocking Jenner to make a quick buck. 

Phillip Maltin hatched the idea to create a novelty line of clothing called TransJenner.  His line will include men's and women's athletic gear, socks, headbands, jerseys, ties, dresses, blouses and more.

Maltin swears to us his intention is not to be salacious, but instead says the brand name is playful -- and he's not one of the "haters." 

0508-sub-trans-jenner-01

Maltin, who filed an application to trademark "TransJenner," says he'd be open to partnering with Bruce.

Don't hold your breath.

Kim Kardashian

Even Protesters Buy My New Book

5/8/2015 6:46 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Kim Kardashian kind of undermined a pair of animal rights advocates Thursday night, when her people got them to buy her book and then threw them out before they could meet Kim and make a fuss.

The 2 women showed up at The Grove in L.A., where hundreds of people lined up for a John Hancock on Kim's new book, "Selfish."

The women made their case to our photog after they were booted, saying Kim has the power to be a positive influence by urging her fans to stop wearing fur manufactured by horrific methods of animal torture.

Kim has never really addressed animal cruelty in the fur industry, only saying, "I believe everyone has the choice of what they want. It's not illegal to buy fur."

Kylie's a VERY Mature Teenager

5/8/2015 10:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
TMZ TV

Tyga’s coming clean about his relationship with Kylie Jenner ... explaining why he doesn’t care what the law says about it -- because she's not your average 17-year-old.

Still, the law would have something to say about it -- IF anyone complained, but that ain't happening. Right, Kris Jenner?tmz-on-tv-3

Tyga

Here's Why I'm Dating Kylie Jenner

5/7/2015 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0506-tyga-kylie-jenner-tmz-01
Tyga
is now defiant about his relationship with 17-year-old Kylie Jenner ... he doesn't care about the laws prohibiting adults from having sex with minors, and the reality is ... unless someone complains, neither do the cops. 

Tyga is telling friends, as far as he's concerned Kylie is more mature than most adults. She's a millionaire who runs a company and even owns her own home.   

The rapper won't squarely say if he's intimate with Kylie, but it's not hard to read between the lines. He says he "doesn't give a f*** about what the law says." He thinks age is relative, and there's nothing "morally wrong" with a mature 17-year-old dating a 25-year-old.

Fact is ... the cops may be on his side. Law enforcement sources tell us they won't investigate statutory rape involving a 17-year-old unless someone complains, even if the relationship is widely reported. And they say, so far no one has complained.
